Gibson ES-359 Black Beauty, Bigsby Overview.

The Gibson ES-359 Bigsby equipped “Black Beauty” is an elegant instrument that pays homage to the progression of two of our most iconic models. The legendary Les Paul “Black Beauty” was first introduced in 1957 and immediately changed the landscape of the electric guitar forever. 

Featuring a thermally engineered chambered maple centerblock with thermally engineered quarter-sawn Adirondack spruce bracing, this ES model is lighter and more agile than ever before. Finished in ebony with a Gibson Custom peghead veneer, there is no mistaking this elegant ebony legend.
